Two songs that aren’t Christmas-y, but together I think they make an appropriate Christmas couplet. In this post, we are considering nothing less than the reason for the world. I hope you will join me in the discussion. In a slight change of pace, I’ve written this article for another blog, Retuned, whose proprietor Matt Linder asked me to contribute something when he saw some of my writing. This is a young website that was created to explore all genres of music and music culture from a Christian perspective. Though he and I have amicably agreed to disagree in some respects as far as musical taste is concerned (alas, he’s partial to heavy metal and holy hip-hop and doesn’t like 90s CCM), I appreciate the opportunity to add something to his site.
